97 – Firefox and Add-ons

This is an award winning, open source browser. There are also thousands of add-ons that enhance its functionality.

Although Firefox was the first No 1 tool, it dropped down the list thereafter. After a year off the list in 2011, it returned in 2012, but it has now dropped by 32 places – nearly off the list again.

Comments from those who selected Firefox as one of their Top Tools 

Pre-2013 comments

“Still my browser of choice, used every day, have used other browsers but still prefer this one.” Carol Cooper Taylor

“I use Firefox almost constantly, because its many plug-in possibilities allow me to maneuver quickly and easily for my work and my personal playing.”  Joan Vinall-Cox

“I have finally converted to Firefox from Internet Explorer (IE). After getting used to it, I have come to realize how disastrous IE really is. But then again, I have been experimenting with Google Chrome this week, and I might convert to Chrome in the coming weeks, if it is as good as it feels right now (simple, fast, sufficient and efficient). Anyway, I have all three running, so if one does not work for something, I have two other options to explore.” Zaid Alsagof

“Fast and stable browser with all the add-ons to create a powerful learning environment and to experience the web to it’s full extend.” Marcel de Leeuwe

“it’s my window on the world”  Jay Cross

“my browser of choice. With an apparently infinite source of extensions, plug-ins and add-ons, Firefox is quick, customizable and clever.”  Kate Foy
